T-Systems to Offer Alcatel-Lucent BiCS for Mid-Market Managed Voice

T-Systems, the business customer unit of Deutsche Telekom, has selected Alcatel-Lucent's Business integrated Communications Solution (BiCS) server as one of the platforms for its mid-market managed voice services. Specifically, T-Systems will offer the BiCS platform as part of its Octopus EP product line, focusing on integrating services and BiCS for German enterprises with between 100-500 employees initially, expanding to enterprises with 1,000 employees in the last quarter of 2008. Customers can purchase and own the system, or use the equipment as part of a managed service that combines phone system, maintenance and system upgrades for a fixed monthly price per user.

Alcatel-Lucent is a strategic partner of T-Systems. This is the second innovative voice solution agreement between the two companies.

The Alcatel-Lucent Business integrated Communication Solution is a multi-service, single-server communication solution for enterprises with up to 500 users.
